Today's Opinions

  • Liberals trying to ‘convert’ us, our children

    Regarding the ACLU — and those collaborators who work with it to strip Kentucky of its Christian identity — it’s worth remembering that “love your enemies” doesn’t mean “pretend you haven’t any.”
    When liberals let on like they’ll be satisfied if only we agree to their latest “small” and “fair” demand, they are lying. Always.

  • So-called ‘atheist’ letter writer should practice what he preaches

    To the editor:
    I read Mr. Jerry Millburn’s guest column (Hypocrites on school board know they’re wrong) in last week’s paper and would like to share some observations.

  • Moved your iris, lilies and other perennials yet? Better get busy

    One of my most favorite things about the farm is the view that I have at sunset. The air has cooled to a pleasant degree and watching the sun send up its last horrah fills the sky with ribbons of color to rival any masterpiece.
    The dogs love to run and romp in the yard, taking turns to come say hello and get a good scratching. It clears my mind of the day’s events and helps me appreciate all that I have.

  • Time is ripe to put pumpkins, apples to good use

    Pumpkins and apples are at the Anderson County Farmer’s Market now. You can also purchase them directly from several local farms.
    A good carving pumpkin doesn’t usually make a good eating pumpkin. The carving pumpkins are tough and a little bland. Pie or sweet pumpkins are best for cooking and baking, as they have a more tender rind and are less fibrous.

  • October’s here so don’t forget to harvest next year’s seeds

    Happy October. The 10th month is upon us and it’s a very seedy time. It’s all I can do not to trim the faded flowers from the hydrangeas, echinacheas, cup plants and the myriad of other once blooming flowers that grace the farm. They look scraggly, but the birds love them. I got to enjoy the blooms all summer and fall so it’s only fitting that wildlife get to enjoy them now.

  • Romance blooms during Civil War skirmish

    The metal crane, with one video camera attached to its arm, slowly panned over the field to capture the sound of cannons, the snicker-snack of cavalry sword against sword and yells from Confederate soldiers as they died.
    The battles of Dogwalk and Lawrenceburg caught on film to be used as the backdrop of a larger love story.
    I’ve attended the Civil War re-enactment in Lawrenceburg for the last three years, listened to Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis trade speeches and steeled myself not to jump when cannons bellowed their first boom.

  • ‘Hypocrites’ on school board know they’re wrong on prayer

    I find it interesting that Roger McDowell, Anderson County School Board member, doesn’t know the teachings that his Bible teaches him.
    Matthew 6:6 is clearly against praying in public and that is straight from the big man’s mouth.
    “But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou has shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly”
    The Bible is very clear; it even says that folks that pray openly are hypocrites, but who am I to judge?

  • ACLU ‘goons’ threatening schools

    To the editor:
    Seems like the well-dressed thugs of the ACLU have notified Kentucky schools with their latest demands to censor any faith-based materials or activities for the coming year. Sadly, many school districts across the state have cowered to the demands, thus robbing students, teachers and others of their First Amendment protection of “free exercise” or religion.
